Beloved Canadian Band's 1991 Roxy Performance on Double LP!
All Tracks Completely Remastered in 2021 by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound!
Includes the Fan Favorite "Killer Whale Tank" Version of "New Orleans Is Sinking"!

Live at The Roxy was recorded on May 3, 1991, originally for the Westwood One Radio Network. Prior to its inclusion on the Canadian legends' Road Apples 30th Anniversary Deluxe package in 2021, the full concert had never been officially available and was a much sought-after show for the bootleggers and die-hard Hip fans. Only 40 minutes of the set was broadcasted on air at the time, making the full recording that much more in demand. This renowned concert saw the band at peak performance and is considered one of the best live shows from any rock band of the era.

Reminiscing on the night and what made this show particularly special for the band, bassist Gord Sinclair recalls:

"I remember the Roxy show like it was yesterday. We had spent a year on the road before recording Road Apples and got right back in the saddle when we finished. The new tunes worked great live and by the time we got to LA we were firing on all pistons."

Live at The Roxy is the second standalone live record for the band and it's been 25 years since their first, Live Between Us, released in 1997. With all tracks completely remastered in 2021 by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in Nashville, the album features the fan favorite "Killer Whale Tank" version of "New Orleans Is Sinking". The nine-minute track is characterized by mid-song story from the late frontman Gord Downie about a job cleaning an aquarium and inadvertently causing friction between the two whales held in the tank; fact or fiction, fans listen in wonderment. The captivating adlibbing throughout the entirety of the record creates the experience for the listener and as Sinclair describes:

"a great show is something you just have to experience to understand. The magic stays with you. Listening back 30 years later and I'm transported to that hot, sweaty, and very special night. The band was tight and unstoppable. Great crowd, great venue. Together we took things to another level."

The Tragically Hip fans brought this release to fruition after countless requests for the deep cut versions of some of the band's most celebrated songs. Live at The Roxy offers a timeless experience of this sensational night as never before released. The striking album artwork is sequential to the Road Apples 30th Anniversary Deluxe art, sure to be a favorite of any collection.

Guitarist Paul Langlois expects listeners will "feel like you were there" as they rock along with the recording. "It's very much us, I think, at one of our primes."

Critically acclaimed for more than three decades, The Tragically Hip has been at the heart of the Canadian musical zeitgeist, evoking a strong emotional connection between their music and their fans that remains unrivaled. A five-piece group of friends including Rob Baker (guitar), Gord Downie (vocals, guitar), Johnny Fay (drums), Paul Langlois (guitar) and Gord Sinclair (bass), who grew up in Kingston, Ontario, The Tragically Hip have achieved both mass popularity with more than 10 million albums in Canada and over 1.5 million sold in the U.S, as well as peer recognition through 15 Juno Awards - picking up the distinguished Humanitarian Award in 2021 which recognizes Canadian artists or industry leaders whose humanitarian contributions have positively enhanced the social fabric of Canada and beyond.

'Live at the Roxy Los Angeles, May 3, 1991'...offers plenty of proof of Downie's willingness to go off on entertaining and improvisational tangents, often in the middle of songs.
